2 black bars when playing Warcraft III.

I really need help here,when i run Warcraft III on my dell inspiron it has 2 black bar at the left and right of the screen.
it runs just fine in vista but i have this issue after installing window 7.
any idea how to fix this?

already set it to 1366x768(which is my screen res) resolution but with no luck.
i never encounter this problem before so i run another game and it completely fine and fullscreen (Worms 3D)

im using the build in graphic card i think its the express chipset.
anyone know how to fix this??

thx.

Sometimes you have to change the rendering options, though I don't know if that's true in WC3.

I know in Diablo 2 (a slightly older Blizzard title) you had to use a Glide Wrapper to get Widescreen support. WC3 may be the same way, but I would see if there are other rendering options in the Video Settings of WC3, if what the above poster suggested doesn't work out.

In the Nvidia Control Panel or Catalyst Control Centre.
